Sex, Blood and Women

Hi All
Oh what a month July was and August will be and of course this little bit of time between the two when the month is neither here nor there but it is pay day so perk up, it is the week end 🙂

We catered the most amazing event for Telkom last week Thursday at their Centurion offices. A Sheesa Nyama or Braai for 1000 people initially that turned into 1350 heads to feed. I have never seen such a never ending queue before. I kept wondering at which point we were going to run out of food and have a hungry crowd turn on us but we didn’t and they didn’t and it was an awesome day. I have put together a brief photo montage if you fancy a quick peek…………………..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPzVNtYuzfI&feature=youtube_gdata_player

27th July
First up on the 27th of July is our quarterly Kink and Fetish Market, now known as the Twisted Market. This isn’t for everyone’s taste but it is a little bit of fun and certainly a different type of market to venture to. There will be a variety of “implements” and toys available as well as art, books, food, wine and beers and of course CAKE. So come meet friends, make new friends, browse, shop and have a delightful winter’s afternoon. Entry is free, apart from what you choose to eat and drink. The market is only open from 2pm to 5pm but definitely worth a visit. Regret no under 18’s are allowed.

31st July
In a departure from the norm, we are having a craft beer tasting in conjunction with the League of Beers. For R190 per head you are going to get to taste between 8 and 10 different craft beers followed by a variety of different curries for dinner and home baked bread. This is a bookings only event and you are welcome to book with me or go directly to the League of Beers to book. Payment is required on booking and there are only a very limited number of tickets as it is a small niche event.
The link to the FB event is :http://www.facebook.com/events/1392965604256562/ or http://www.leagueofbeers.com/shop/cafe-lollipop-tasting-dinner/

I have 5 copies of the book African Brew for sale. This incredible book tells the story of South African beer and is well worth its price of R295. Copies are available at Indulgence and will be on sale on the evening of the craft beer tasting……………which reminds me, have you booked your ticket yet?
